ext_2655537 @ : Lindahl tax
A Lindahl tax is a form of taxation in which individuals pay for the provision of a public good according to their marginal benefits. So each individual pays according to his/her marginal benefit derived from the public good. e.g. If A loves scenic beauty and likes to be close to nature he might be ready to pay 5 dollars per day for sitting in a park, whereas a college student who does not visit the park very often will not be ready to pay so much, but might agree to pay 1 dollar. So a person who values the good more pays more.

lava_sharks @ :
I'm going after my B.A.S. in Business Management & Supervision but I've heard that you cannot get an MBA but the program has the typical 120-credit curriculum. Can anybody shed any light on why I couldn't be accepted to graduate school?

I have just been accepted into Russia’s new up and coming MBA program Skolkovo. This is an amazing opportunity that will allow me to travel while simultaneously learn about business economics and communications.
During my sixteen months at Skolkovo, I will be writing a blog about the school and what it is like being a part of the Skolkovo Team.
Feel free to read and comment.

theonlytime @ : Free Amazon Prime for students
Amazon is currently giving free 1 year memberships to Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping, $3.99 overnight shipping) to current students with a .edu email address: http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info
I'm not sure how long they're offering this (it doesn't say on the site).
Just thought i'd give fellow students the heads up on this in case you haven't heard about it yet. This is going to save me a ton on shipping textbooks this year!

pseudoreasoning @ : Dilemma: Finance or Economics?
I was originally planning to study MBA but I think that I might be too young for that and an MBA program might be "generalist", so here are my best next options: MS Financial Engineering Master in Applied Economics
Assuming that they are of equal academic reputation (they are in the same college anyway), I want to know which between the two fields is more useful in general. You might want to give advice about the factors that I should consider.
Background: I am currently in the field of IT, a team leader in software Quality Assurance to be exact. I graduated BS Computer Science major in Computer Engineering
but I am not interested at specializing in computer hardware and electronics. Interested at learning business concepts in general.
While I haven't fully decided yet, I am continuing with my French
. Feel free to ask questions.

monekey @ : new member
I'm a genetics major who has been accepted to the MS/MBA (part time evening) at Rutgers Business School. Has anyone attended this school or program? I know Rutgers isn't one of the best schools for an MBA, but I'm interested in working for the pharmaceuticals and they are all over NJ. In this program, Ill get an MS in biological science, and an MBA.
Since I am fresh out of college and haven't worked more than 8 months, this is probably the best opportunity I have. I also got into a MS program at Rutgers in microbiology and molecular genetics but decided not to pursue it because I don't want to be doing lab work for the rest of my life.
Anyway, I'm excited but nervous and I'd like to hear what you all think about the program. What are some things I should be careful about, what should I avoid, etc. I am completely jumping from a science background to a nonscience realm

die_fledermaus @ : Hey everyone
I joined this group because I'm graduating in May 2009 with my undergrad in German and English, and trying to figure out what to do next. I'm bilingual, fluent in German and English, and I have German and American citizenship, so I think I would like to come to Germany to live and possibly study. I think that I have a real advantage having the 2 citizenships and the 2 languages, and would love to do something on an international scale, where I can travel and have lots of contact to different people and that kind of thing. So, I'm thinking about international business or management. But, I'm not really sure what those entail, and which one is better for me. I know that I will have to do some economics, accounting, and that kind of thing - which makes me really nervous, because my math skills are pretty much nonexistent. I took microeconomics, and got a C. I understand the concepts, but when you add math to the whole thing, I get completely lost. So, I think I could struggle through that...If there's more to international business/management than just math that I can do well in. ;)
So, basically, I'm wondering - what do these programs entail? What kind of things would I be studying? And what kind of careers are available to people who study international business and/or management? Are there any websites that have information about this? AND, in order to do international things career-wise, are things like business and management the only options?
Thanks in advance.

genderpac @ :
The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition is pleased to announce the release of its 2008 GENIUS Survey in partnership with Ernst & Young. GenderPAC works to ensure that classrooms, communities and workplaces are safe for everyone to learn, grow and succeed.
The Gender Equality National Index for Universities & Schools (GENIUS), GenderPAC’s most recent effort to end discrimination and promote awareness, encourages colleges and universities to recognize the benefits of a GenderSAFEtm campus - supportive equitable and protective for all students. Choosing to participate in GENUIS sends a strong public statement that bullying or discriminating based on the race, sex or gender of a student, faculty, or staff member is not tolerated at your institution
Fill out the survey at: www.gpac.org/GENIUS2008survey, and make sure that we have data for as many schools as possible. Your voice will help us continue to work towards a safe and welcoming environment for every student.
While we greatly appreciate the interest taken in GENIUS by students, staff and faculty at academic institutions outside of the United States, at this time GENIUS is only able to track schools based in the United States.

bx3081 @ :
Hi how are you all going,
I've made a mock livejournal for my marketing subject at university (this one!), and I'd really like to enlist some friends to complete polls, comment, and so that I actually have friends
on my userinfo!!! This way I can explain the concept of Livejournal much easier to the class for my presentation (eek)!
Don't worry I won't show anyone your livejournals if you're worried about privacy etc...
So my interests involve being a fence sitter (re:politics), being Australian, studying Journalism and Marketing at James Cook University in Queensland Australia. There are many more interests on my profile page, if you'd care to take a gander. I'm 22. And female. If that is of any relevance to you.
I also have a real LJ, and if you'd like to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd be more than glad to link you to it.
So add me!!!!!!

heartbeatfast @ : Companies and social responsibility..
Ok, I'm writing an essay on the social responsibilities of companies and I need to make an argument either for the idea that companies should be bound by social responsibilites or arguments against that.
Since the basic aim of any company is to maximize profit while staying within the boundaries of the law, I'm inclined to go with the idea that companies do not hold any more social responsibility than the law forces them to. Or saying that another way, basically that they can technically disregard social responsibility as far as the law will allow them to.
Here are the lines along which I'm thinking right now..McDonalds aren't responsible for people being fat, McDonalds are under no obligation to look out for the health of people who can't control their diet. McDonalds have one aim, to be profitable. That sort of thing.
What do you think when you think about big (or small even) companies and social responsibility? All ideas welcome, thanks!

evil_admiral @ : Odd correlation
I have a question here. I'm doing a Finance MS right now, and I did my program orientation last week with a batch of MBA students. As an ice-breaker we were asked to give our name, where we worked, what other degree(s) we already had, and what we would have on a no-rules vanity license plate.
Now the majority of the people in the group (there were maybe a dozen of us who weren't MBAs) either had a little something relating to their families, or to football. I found that odd. Why is there such a seemingly high correlation between MBA students and football? Is there really a correlation, or was I just in too small a sample? Does the correlation really exist? If it does exist, then why? Are the personality types which are likely to enjoy sports also more likely to pursue a MBA, or is it a freak coincidence?

king_felix @ : Some business/finance questions.
A friend and I are working on raising $400,000.00 for a package consisting of two feature length HD documentaries. This is the first time that we've put together a business plan, and we'll soon be consulting with a lawyer as to what our next steps should be before we start securing investors.
We aren't business majors and don't have business experience. We have lots of experience in film production, but unfortunately there isn't a money person in our mix. I'm posting in a few business/accounting/finance communities in the hopes that some of you might be willing to have a look and offer advice.
The business plan PDF can be downloaded by following this link.
We particularly need the following questions answered (below the cut):( Questions.Collapse )

imarketing4s @ : Good Technology Is Nice; A Good Idea Is Better
Hi everyone, just thought I'd share interesting business articles with you guys. :)Internet Marketing Articles
It has never been easier to start an Internet company. Create a Web site, begin a "viral" marketing campaign to grow word-of-mouth and acquire an audience, garner some ad revenues, generate venture capital funding and sell out to a Web giant such as Yahoo! or Google. Startup costs can be minimized by using standard technology and by outsourcing corporate functions, such as advertising sales. The business model, at least initially, is optional.
This blueprint is becoming increasingly common among so-called "Web 2.0" companies--Web-based communities that facilitate collaboration and sharing. Companies like Facebook, the fast-growing social networking site, and Twitter, a popular mobile messaging service, didn't introduce breakthrough technologies, but they have become phenomenal success stories nonetheless.Read full article
